Is THIS the strangest celebrity 'couple' of the century?

Pamela Anderson has opened up somewhat about her relationship with Julian Assange, which blossomed as she brought him vegan food to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he is hiding from Swedish authorities.

While remaining quite coy about the nature of her relationship with the fugitive, she said: "Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle - I love him for this.

"I understand that our 'affair' and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention, but I'd rather not go into private details. Let's just say everyone deserves love."

She described her relationship with Mr Assange as "challenging", but she enjoys the deep conversations they have together.

Ms Anderson said: "He's a very good teacher. Julian is one of my favourite people. He is a refugee. He might be the most famous refugee of our time - famous for being persecuted."

The 'Baywatch' star commented on her similarities with the WikiLeaks founder.

"I'm very concerned about his well-being and safety," she said. "I'm very moody. I wouldn't say I'm a happy person. I'm tormented and love sick always. It's hard to find relief sometimes.

"I'm trying to not feel lonely. But, I hurt a lot about so many things. I'm a romantic - it makes my stomach hurt."
